Advancing the Global Rule of Law

The International Criminal Court: Advancing the Global Rule of Law

 In 2002, the International Criminal Court (ICC) began operating in The Hague, Netherlands, with the mandate to prosecute genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and aggression perpetrated by individuals anywhere. This is the world’s first permanent court with this mandate.

The US had a prominent role in the creation of the ICC, but has not signed the Rome Statute, the document that provides for the creation of the ICC.

Sarah L.S. Erickson, J.D. and Amanda McAllister, J.D., Benjamin B. Ferencz Fellows in Human Rights and Law at World Without Genocide, will discuss the ICC on Thursday, September 21 at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 1200 Marquette Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN  55403, from 6:45-8:45 pm.

The program is free and open to the public; no reservations are necessary. $25 for two standard CLE credits for lawyers.

Sponsored by Citizens for Global Solutions Minnesota. Co-sponsored by Minnesota Alliance of Peacemakers, United Nations Association of Minnesota, and World Without Genocide at Mitchell Hamline School of Law.
